FBI Hunts Cosa Nostra Crime Chief WASHINGTON (UPI) — The FBI announced Saturday night it had obtained a warrant for the arrest of Angelo Bruno, alleged head of the Cosa Nostra crime syndicate in Philadelphia, hi a crackdown on an extortion racket extending to New York City and New Jersey. Five other men were arrested in Philadelphia and in Lodi and Nutley, N.J., on charges of conspiring to violate a federal law prohibiting interstate travel to commit extortion, the FBI said. A sixth man, a New Yorker, also was sought on the same charges. Bruno was being sought as a fugitive on the same charges, the FBI said. A bureau source said Bruno is one of nine ruling commissioners of the infamous underworld crime syndicate in the United States. The crackdown had no bearing on underworld informer Joseph Valachi's recent public revelations into Cosa Nostra before Senate crime investigators, the FBI said. In identical complaints filed by the FBI in Philadelphia Saturday, the FBI charged Bruno and the other five men with conspiring to travel between Pennsylvania and New Jersey "with intent to distribute proceeds of the crime of extortion and with intent to commit crimes of violence in furtherance of the extortion." a After
